Retreats

In addition to our 18 Inch Journey schools we host shorter retreats and camps for a variety of age groups.  These retreats are a great option for those who are unable to attend our school but still desire to experience the heartbeat of the Cageless Birds.  All of our retreats are designed to facilitate beautiful encounters with the Father and inspire a lifelong friendship with Jesus.  Check out the information below for details on our 2017 camps and retreats.
